Your New Company
We’re creating a home where all brands can thrive. A place where everyone (yep, everyone!) is a part of building beloved brands. Today, Frontify empowers thousands of different-sized companies worldwide, including Lufthansa, KIA, Vodafone, Maersk, and Allianz.

Frontify is a scale-up company with over 300 employees and growing. We’re an international team – with our headquarters in St. Gallen, Switzerland; offices in NYC, US, and London, UK; as well as colleagues working remotely from all over Europe. Frontify is built on a collaborative culture of experimentation, trust, and transparency. We believe in being happy and fulfilled at work and letting our personalities shine through everything we do. Does this sound like a place for you? Then read on.

Your Team
You'll join Frontify's newly formed Software Architecture Team and join other developers responsible for designing the future architecture for Frontify's beloved brand management platform. This team works cross-functionally with the Engineering and Product Management Teams, so you'll have the chance to work with ambitious and friendly people from all across the company. The architecture team itself is made up of driven, ambitious, and growth-oriented professionals – in Switzerland and elsewhere in Europe.

Your Mission
As Frontify’s newest Senior Software Architect, you’ll gain a deep understanding of the technical and domain landscape to create elegant and scalable solutions that meet business needs. Working closely with the Product teams to design specific solutions, set engineering standards, and enhance developer experiences and effectiveness, you’ll take our product to the next level. 
You’ll proactively identify and overcome obstacles that impact the overall user experience by engineering practical solutions and understand how to manage or pay off tech debt while guiding others through the process, too. All the while you’ll stay connected with the code and support developers through pair programming and review sessions and foster Domain-Driven Design by supporting and mentoring team members.
